U.S. Attorney John Durham has not subpoenaed a key member of Robert Mueller's Russia probe team as part of his investigation into the origins of the highly charged matter.

Andrew Weissmann, who served as general counsel of the FBI from 2011-2013 and was later part of Mueller's Russia investigation, told CBS News he doesn't expect to be subpoenaed.

"I have not been subpoenaed and I don't anticipate it," Weissmann said. "But I'm happy to give any information I have. I don't think, given what I understand [Durham is] looking at, which is the genesis of the Russia investigation, which I was involved in, I don't suspect that I'm going to have particularly relevant information."

Weissmann's new book, "Where Law Ends: Inside the Mueller Investigation," was released Tuesday and gives readers a glimpse into Mueller's probe that examined Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. election and whether President Donald Trump's campaign had improper ties to the Kremlin.

In the book, Weissmann wrote that the Mueller probe "could have done more."

Mueller concluded that Trump may have obstructed justice on multiple occasions during the probe, but a final decision on the matter was not reached.

"It is not surprising that members of the Special Counsel's Office did not always agree, but it is disappointing to hear criticism of our team based on incomplete information," Mueller said in a statement.

"The office's mission was to follow the facts and to act with integrity. That is what we did, knowing that our work would be scrutinized from all sides. When important decisions had to be made, I made them. I did so as I have always done, without any interest in currying favor or fear of the consequences. I stand by those decisions and by the conclusions of our investigation."

It's unclear whether Durham's findings will be released before the Nov. 3 election. Donald Trump Jr. said that Durham is "running out the clock" by waiting to make his conclusions public.
